Celery juice is now the new king of the greens. It has overtaken kale juice and is now the latest trend. Celery juice has many benefits such as helping with weight loss and combating inflammation.
Throughout this article, I will help you to understand why Celery juice should be your new favorite.
Why drink it and not eat it?
We should drink Celery and not eat it as when it is blended during its preparation process, we can extract more nutrients as the fibers are removed.
Celery is rich in many nutritional elements such as potassium, manganese, and vitamins A, C, K and many more. People who drink Celery juice estimate that 16ounce or 475ml is more than enough per day. It should be consumed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
Can we add it to other drinks?
Celery can be mixed with other beverages or smoothies that contain vegetables or fruits to further augment their benefits.
It can also be added to drinks that contain proteins such as yogurt or protein powder, but be wary that when added to other drinks some of the Celery’s benefits might be lost.
Celery juice and weight loss:
Celery juice is low in calories as every 16 ounces contain only 85 calories. So, a perfect step towards weight loss would be to replace high-calorie drinks like soda or coffee with Celery juice.
The thing is that Celery juice does not make you lose weight; instead, it helps with the process. Drinking Celery juice each morning on an empty stomach burns dormant fat cells in the liver as well as detoxifying your body.
This leads us to the conclusion that including Celery juice in your diet is an excellent step towards weight loss.
Celery Juice and inflammation:
Many people claim that Celery juice can be considered a cure for inflammation. Until now, scientific research to support these claims has been very scarce. However, Celery juice might cure inflammation.
Some claim that Celery juice is rich in antioxidant compounds called flavones that can prevent certain types of reactions from happening in your body, thus preventing inflammations.
Celery juice works by starving the pathogens, so Celery prevents the pathogens that carry diseases and viruses from acquiring their fuel and thus it could prevent illness.
There are multiple benefits to drinking Celery juice such as:
Controlling blood pressure
Since Celery, the juice is rich in nitrates that the primary purpose is to strengthen the heart and help lower high blood pressure, Celery juice is considered an excellent natural option for people with high blood pressure.
Celery Juice aids in the process of digestion through restoring the stomach’s hydrochloric acid levels back to normal.
Strengthens your immune system
Many people have weak immune systems and are very prone to diseases. Celery juice is rich in sodium cluster salts that are absorbed by white blood cells to increase their power and used as a mean of improving both their and their defense against any disease that might invade the body.
Aids the Liver
Human life depends mainly on sodium cluster salts. So, consuming Celery that is rich in salts is very important for the liver to function properly and efficiently. This leads to the live breaking of deposited and old proteins and fats and thus lowering your cholesterol levels for better overall health.
Helps with Acne
Celery juice is rich in sodium cluster salts that are harmful and can combat bacteria such as streptococcus, which is the main cause of acne, so Celery juice is a natural solution to acne.
Despite all of the previously stated benefits of Celery juice from aiding in weight loss to being a natural deterrent to inflammation to aiding the liver. None of these benefits have yet been scientifically proven.
Most of the experiments have been performed either in test tubes or on rats, not on human beings, however. This suggests that maybe none of these benefits can be real.
However, people who have started to include Celery juice in their diets have reported: “after some time” that they have noticed changes for the better in their metabolism and health.
This leads to the probability that we might not need to rely on scientific facts for everything. So you might want to start including Celery juice in your diet to acquire some of its benefits, but you should consult with your doctor first.
